Wednesday's Haydock racing tips: Changing Colours can bring it home for Charlie Appleby

Planet Sport tipsters have some hot selections for the afternoon meeting at Haydock on Wednesday, June 8.

A trip to Merseyside is on the cards as everyone treads water before Royal Ascot next week. We've got a juicy list of fancies for you below, and a bit more detail on our highlighted selections too.

13:10 Haydock - Sameem

13:45 Haydock - Mimikyu

14:20 Haydock - Changing Colours

14:55 Haydock - Courageous Knight

15:30 Haydock - Elsals

16:00 Haydock - Reel Rosie

16:40 Haydock - Vanity Affair

14:20 Haydock - Changing Colours

Changing Colours can initiate a double for Charlie Appleby in the British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes.

He was beaten just a neck on his racecourse debut at Yarmouth and could well have won had he not jumped a path early on and ran very green at certain points.

The experience should not be lost on him, with similar comments applying to Courageous Knight in the Marie Foran Acsil And Past Members Novice Stakes.

He started over six furlongs at Nottingham but was keeping on all the way in fourth, suggesting this swift move up to seven should be to his benefit.

15:30 Haydock - Elsals

The handicapper has given Elsals an initial mark of 78 and that could prove good value in the Join Racing TV Now Handicap.

A 140,000 guineas purchase by Kevin Philippart de Foy last autumn, Elsals had shown promise in one juvenile outing for Richard Hannon before being sent to the sales as part of the Shadwell cutbacks.

Connections would surely have had high hopes on his initial run at Lingfield but he could finish only fifth as an odds-on shot, prompting his trainer to geld him - a decision that seemingly paid dividends last time.

Lining up on the Lingfield turf, Elsals made all over seven furlongs, looking decent value for the official margin of two and a quarter lengths in the process.

16:00 Haydock - Reel Rosie

Reel Rosie can keep on her current upward curve in the Fillies' Handicap.

Second to Gatecrasher Girl first time up - form that now longs pretty strong with that horse now three from three for the year - Reel Rosie went one better at Newmarket when seeing off Convection by a comfortable four lengths, with that rival having been just under two lengths behind in third previously at Nottingham.

Reel Rosie has been hiked 9lb for that victory, but given she will be having just her fifth career start here, there is reason to hope there is a fair bit left in the locker yet.
